Description

The mission of Social Issues and Policy Review (SIPR) is to provide state of the art and timely theoretical and empirical reviews of topics and programs of research that are directly relevant to understanding and addressing social issues and public policy. SIPR, like other review volumes (e.g., Annual Review of Psychology and Advances in Experimental Social Psychology) is formally considered a periodical. Papers will be accessible and relevant to a broad audience and will normally be based on a program of research. Works in SIPR will represent perspectives directly relevant to the psychological study of social issues and public policy. Contributions are expected to be review papers that present a strong scholarly foundation and consider how research and theory can inform social issues and policy or articulate the implication of social issues and public policy for theory and research.

Works may relate to controversial current issues, but they must be well grounded in theory and research, normally involving work in the behavioral sciences, and present fair and unbiased portrayals of the issues. SIPR is not limited to a particular point of view, political or social ideology, geographic area of focus, or disciplinary orientation. It encompasses areas of global concern. SIPR volumes are nonthematic; that is, the papers within each volume will focus on a variety of topics.

The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) is an international group of over 3,000 psychologists, allied scientists, students, and others who share a common interest in research on the psychological aspects of important social issues. In various ways, the Society seeks to bring theory and practice into focus on human problems of the group, the community, and nations, as well as the increasingly important problems that have no national boundaries.

Through its activities–including the publication of the Journal of Social Issues (JSI), the electronic journal Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy (ASAP), the new periodical journal Social Issues and Policy Review (SIPR), and the SPSSI Newsletter, as well as annual programming at APA’s Annual Convention and SPSSI’s own conventions–SPSSI affords social and behavioral scientists means of applying their knowledge and insights to the critical problems of today’s world. Research on social issues is fostered through several annual award and grant programs. SPSSI also sponsors a number of theme conferences and research workshops. The James Marshall Public Policy Scholar and Scientist in the Public Interest, both located in Washington, D.C., work to implement SPSSI public policy initiatives at the federal level. With NGO status, SPSSI serves as consultant to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
